"It symbolizes months and weeks of effort by our staff to pull off this", said Jim Erickson, project director of the Mars Science Laboratory mission, that will be directed by NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory at Pasadena, California.
According to NASA, Thursday's Mars science discussion will be hosted by Michelle Thaller, the assistant director of science for communications in the agency's Planetary Science Division. However, what is known for sure is that NASA will not disclose anything until the so-called "Live Discussion on New Mars Science Results" which will take place on June 7th, at 2 PM EDT.
Duterte promises to resign if women protest onstage kiss
Anna Pinili, a churchgoer who considers herself a devout catholic, said Duterte had good intentions, but could have handled it better.
The pair of CubeSats that make up the Mars Cube One (MarCO) mission were both launched on May 5, along with the InSight lander, which is headed toward a November 26 touchdown on the red planet. After two years, the team made the rover use one of its robotic arms to drill into a hole.
Late last month, the rover used it's newly function drill to collect rock samples for the first time in almost two years. The inlets lead to Curiosity's onboard laboratories.
"This was no small feat. The gambit paid off, and we now have a key sample we might have never gotten", Ashwin Vasavada, the mission's project scientist, said in the statement.
That Kardashian-Trump Meeting Ended Up With Him Commuting A Life Sentence
Trump confirmed the visit in a tweet: "Great meeting with @KimKardashian today , talked about prison reform and sentencing". Her case had been championed by reality TV star Kim Kardashian West , who met with Trump in the Oval Office last week .
The Curiosity Rover, which has been roaming the Martian surface for almost six years, beamed back the data that led to the finding.
"The science team was confident that the engineers would deliver - so confident that we drove back to a site that we missed drilling before".
"If they announced that, once that has been satisfied to the general public, people who pay their taxes to send the $2.5billion probe to Mars, they are going to say okay well we discovered life, we don't need to go there anymore". On the other hand, despite some drilling problems that have since been solved, the little Mars Curiosity rover is still cruising on the planet while conducting experiments to help NASA scientists find some clues related to "something". It's quite remarkable to have a moment like this, five years into the mission.
